I had no idea what "Firefly" was until about a month ago when SciFi started showing it Friday nights. I guess I was deployed when it came out the first time. Pretty good show though, and if the movie is anything like it, it will be good as well.

I never really got into firefly the first time around, saw it on the sci fi reruns and started to like it. I'll see the movie myself but dont have high expectations.

I like the show, it's entertaining. That is all I expect from the movie as well. I try not to get too "deep" with science fiction.

I'll just add my "hell yeah" that I've put into every thread about Firefly and Serenity I've seen on this site.

It's a movie based on a show Fox ran and then canceled after 1 season...

Basically, take Star Wars from Han Solo's perspective, and mix in a world where space travel exists, but people still ride horses & carry 20th century weapons.... One episode had the crew smuggling cattle between planets...

It's a 'Space Western' for all practical purposes...

He knows, he was making a "Seinfeld" reference. In one episode, George's father would scream "SERENITY NOW!" to calm himself when he was upset, it was something he read in aself-help book or something.

I’ll be going to see it the day it hits major release (Sept. 30th). What I want to know is how the hell are so many people watching it already? On IMDB, it has over 2000 votes!! It’s got an 8.6 overall rating so far which is extremely good and would probably put it in the top 50 or maybe top 25 if it holds.

The timing of the reruns is a bit off. I would think they would time the last episode to coincide with the opening of the movie.

If anyone is interested... and you are curious about some of the music from the first trailer:

Click here

and if someone else happens to have these two songs or the albums they're on and would like to either share them with us or pass on a reliable bittorrent where they can be downloaded it would be appreciated.

If you have the songs but no way of passing them on e-mail them to me and I'll host them for a couple days off my site so people can pull them down.

Less than 24 hours.

At this point I'm kind of glad I waited and didn't see a pre-screening. I don't think I could handle a theater filled with freaks and geek fans of this show/movie. I'll be much happier seeing it tomorro and being almost the only on in the theater.

Watched all the previews on the web page. Pretty awesome.

Only thing I'm worried about it it seems like Jayne talks different... more like Adam Baldwin in othe rmovies than like he talked in the series. Guess we'll see.

yep, hope its as good as the TV series.

Hells ya. I am hoping for a midnight showing, but doesn't look like I'll be that lucky. my weekend nights work shift will mean I'llhave to wait till next week to see it! Argh. I've watched the DVDs probably 6 times since picking them up last May...

the pilot guy gets killed near the end, so does the shepard guy, and I think one other I can't remember.

A dumbass is someone who doesn't want to know about the plot of a movie before seeing it, yet feels compelled to read threads about it on a discussion board.





either edit your post ...

Red_Beard: That's just mean man... plain mean. And I laughed when Iread it... only because I already saw it.

Saw it early this afternoon. FUCKING AWESOME!!!! No other way to describe it.

It didn't seem too rushed through, but it wasn't quite the same pace that the show tends to follow. WAYYYYY more action in the movie than the show.

The way Mal sets up the big battle scene was awesome. I never would have figured that out from the previews.

Characters that died really sucked. Totally is going to throw off any follow-up movies or shows for me. But it's a good sign of realism when the crew is always taking such a considerable beating or even getting killed. I almost prefer that to have the crew miraculously always come out completely un scathed from a battle where everyone else has been killed.

The ship took a beating too. Man... I was expecting them to have to go back to the ship shopping mall and buy a whole new one.

I definitely plan on seeing it again.

I saw it Monday. It rocked.

Walked to the theater and saw it today, it was great.
Link Posted: 9/30/2005 9:16:32 PM EDT
best move I've seen in a long ass time. I loved the luring into the battle part, I didn't realize it was going to happen until right when they opened fire! Then I was like "OH NO HE DIDN'T!" and snapped my fingers.

I think they did kill off too many characters though. Kinda sad. I wanted to know more about the shepard. and about the guys with the blue gloves. I hope there's a sequel and a new series!
Link Posted: 9/30/2005 9:18:44 PM EDT
Just got back from seeing Serenity. Wow, just wow. I was entertained the whole way through. Good use of humor, but at the same time the drama and action were spot on too. A lot of things are revealed in the movie, like how the Alliance came to be, and a lot of the back story we never got to learn about, at least of River's background. I kind of knew that Book was going to die, but Wash really blew me away. Still can't believe he got killed. I actually thought that they all were going to die, but luckily they didn't. River kicked ass.

A couple of unanswered questions though: like why was River taught to fight? Who was she going to fight? Who are the Blue Hands Men? Who was the Shepherd, really?

I really hope they make the other two movies though. I can't wait to see them already.
Link Posted: 9/30/2005 9:37:08 PM EDT
I think Book may have,at one time, been an agent similar to the guy in the movie. Sucks that we may never really find out though. I thought the movie rocked hard core. I will miss Wash in any sequals or shows though. I liked the comic dynamic between him and Zoe and Mal. Bout time Kaily (sp?) got her some. Poor girl was running out of batteries.
Link Posted: 9/30/2005 9:52:20 PM EDT
Good movie and well worth the money.

I thought the same thing in that last bit of dialogue between him and Mal. I'm thinking he was an operative who saw the evil of his ways the same way the operative hunting River did. He chose to repent by becoming a shepherd.

I wouldn't be surprised if they reveal that a little more in a sequel.

I didn't see his death coming. I knew about Wash from spoilers, but I was actually beginning to think they changed it due to fans disappointment and killed off Book instead. Guess not.

It reminded me of how Trinity was killed in Matrix 3.

Hard to say... the way they go see the Shepherd and are very familiar with him may seem like you missed something.

I think just the dynamic between the characters will be somewhat lost if you haven't had the build-up of the series. The way they interact with one another can't be slapped together in two hours. It might seem almost contrived that way.

Honestly I think this movie is for Firefly fans. It's not one of those movie where they rehash everything that's happened in previous iterations of it in order to avoid alienating non-fans. They pretty much get right into it and don't waste time with catering to people who didn't watch the show.

That might put this movie at a disadvantage come time for talks of a sequel. Personally I think it's great the way it's been made FOR the fans.

In short... make your family watch the series.

I think they will get it to the point of being satisfied. Afterwards you'll be hungry for more and will want to watch the series.
